comment SSH Gateway in ~/.ssh/config
That's what common sense tells me too, but then it makes me wonder why I see so many sites suggesting the first one instead of the second one.

comment How to compile programs on Linux systems when I don't have sudo privileges to install the dev dependencies
@jasonwryan: Not quite, I'm talking about development packages, not ordinary programs. It's about the development workflow, not just a question about apt-get.

I'm also really confused... I tried running ./configure --prefix="$HOME/usr" but then it told me No package 'xorg-macros' found... so I downloaded the source for xutils-dev (which seems to be what contains xorg-macros?) and cd'd into ./xutils-dev-7.7~1/util-macros/ and then ran ./configure --prefix="$HOME/usr" and make install there. Which ran fine, but didn't seem to fix the missing package issue whatsoever... did I miss a step? Am I going about it correctly?

Sorry I'm a little confused, am I supposed to specify the -dev packages here, or the normal packages? Because I just tried apt-get source libxrandr-dev and I got Picking 'libxrandr' as source package instead of 'libxrandr-dev'

Oh I didn't know about apt-get source... I'll give that a try, thanks. +1 (I can't exactly open a support ticket in my situation.)

@martin: "Install them locally"? I didn't know you can install packages locally... I just install them with sudo apt-get install package-dev; how do I install them "locally"?

I guess I should've mentioned, half of the program is figuring out how to get the correct headers and such before I can point to the directory. With sudo it's pretty easy: sudo apt-get install blah-dev, but how do I get the correct sources when I can't do that?
